Annotation
We focus in details on the use of abstract regular tree model checking (ARTMC) within a successful method for verification of programs with dynamic data structures. The method is based on a use of a set of transducers to describe the behaviour of the verified system. But the ARTMC method was originally developed for systems of one transducer only and its generalization to several ones was supposed to be straightforward. Although this straightforward generalization (used in a prototype  implementation) works well in a number of examples, the counterexample analysis is in general unreliable and can cause infinite looping of the tool as we demonstrate on a simple example containing an erroneous pointer manipulation. Therefore we propose a new  algorithm used for a counterexample analysis and we prove its correctness.
